You cannot.
Raj Kumar Makkad (Expert) 03 December 2012
Service book is a personal document which cannot be provided under RTI Act without the personal consent of the person concerned may he be retired or in service.
Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Expert) 03 December 2012
It is not clear which SC order you are referring to.

Service Book is not personal rather personnel document. It is official and public record.

Service book contains details of increment/promotion / upgradation/ downgradation, awards, penalties etc. All this information is not confidential. It is already know to the deptt.

In case you intention is to disclose irregularity then you can make a try.

You need to be the querist or approved LAWyersclub expert to take part in this query .
